And MOST IMPORTANTLY, she understands that your wedding is about the two of you and what you both want for your special day.
Amanda is an incredible wedding photographer. She has such an eye for lighting and capturing natural moments. I hate having my picture taken and felt like Amanda worked well with me to loosen up and most importantly be myself. She is very laid back and easy to work with. Post marriage, Amanda has also taken photos of my son that I just love. I could not recommend her enough.
Amanda was the perfect photographer for our wedding. I cherish the pictures she captured from our special day. From start to finish Amanda is a true professional. I can't say enough nice words about her- she is highly skilled, accommodating, and an overall calming presence!
My Fiance and I hired Amanda as our engagement and wedding photographer and we could not have been happier!!!! She is extremely, extremely talented, kind, and overall wonderful to work with and be around. We loved every picture and people STILL tell me how amazing our pictures are. Amanda is cool, calm, and collected on the wedding day and does her thing! I would 100000% HIGHLY recommend her to any and everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We met Amanda by accident. She was a second shooter for our engagement photos and we just fell in love. Her photos are amazing! We not only use her for our wedding but everything since then; boudoir, maternity, newborn, first birthday, and all of our holiday photos. We just finished a shoot recently down in Old Town Alexandria and boy did she know all the secret cool spots. Amanda is our photographer for life and I couldn't be more grateful for her kindness, patience and of course the extra care to make sure I have no fly-aways! Always know I will look good!
